Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I have worked on and off for over a year. It has been a labor of love and sometimes hate…lol….especially when it wouldn’t go together like it was supposed to.
I found this pattern on Silhouette but I changed it from an angel to a doll. The name of the pattern is Liberty Angel 3D Figure Part 1 Torso Arm Dress and Liberty Angel 3D Figure Part 2 Legs Wings Apron…I have no way of linking the patterns to my blog…sorry 😞 I do how ever have the tutorial from Needles ‘n’ Knowledge blog which did help in putting together my little dolly.
She is approximately 18 inches high once put together. Most of the paper collection that is used on the dress and pantaloons are from Anna Griffin Garden Party Stack.
The arms and legs are jointed with beads and ribbon. That was one of the reasons that is took me forever was at first I had the wrong size of beads and after searching I finally found a couple of strands at Michaels on clearance.
I also added an assortment of lace to the dress which I think really “fancified” her up. 😀
Instead of using twine and twirling onto a dowel and spraying with Starch to create curls I decided to use yarn to create her hair. I cut the yarn in three different lengths and started on the back of her head and worked my way to side of the doll’s face. The bangs I butted against the longer hair and once finished I trimmed up and added a lace bow to the top of her head.
Instead of using the banner that was included with this project I decided to use the Banners and Pennants diecuts. After cutting out and putting together I added sequins and a gem to each of the banners.
I added a little “blush” to her cheeks and a gem to her collar and wa-laa she is finally finished! I hope you enjoyed this project and if you have any questions please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project for Eileen Hull’s November Art with Heart Challenge.
Eileen has new diecuts called Stitchlets out this month and let me tell you I am in LOVE!!!
It is a combination of sewing and paper crafts all rolled into one! I started with the Embroidery Hoop diecut which I cut out twice with mat board. I spritzed with Tattered Angels Gold Glimmer Mist and I laid it the hoops off to the side to dry. (I didn’t spray the circles that are in the center of the hoops since I won’t be using them). Also I inked the “closure”/top of the hoop with silver ink.
Next I cut out flowers and leaves from felt with the Buttons, Border and Trim diecut. The pink flowers I layered four per flowers and tried off with cross stitch thread.
I layered two leaves and tied off with thread and the yellow flowers I actually cut it to make a spiral. I started by rolling the petal around each other until the center (two button holes) is left. I then add glue to that and pinch that to the bottom of the flower. The border stem with leaves I cut from cardstock. I cut two leaves from that inked edges and shaped and added to the yellow flowers.
The larger hoop I tied various lace and some ric rac to the bottom. I drew a half circle from the larger hoop onto a double sided cardstock, cut out, used a decorative punch on the straight edge, inked the edges and then cut down the center. I adhered to the backside of the hoop and then curled the edges with a pencil to created a pocket.
Next I cut netting a little bit bigger than the smaller hoop and wrapped around the hoop and then adhered to the backside of hoop. I inserted the smaller hoop into the larger one and added a little glue to the backside. Next while the hoop is still turned over I sprinkled sequins on the netting and then adhered a second netting over that and trimmed off the excess. The second set of hoops I adhered over that.
I arranged the flowers in the pocket and on the hoop and then glued down. I also used the Banners and Pennants diecut to finish off this fun and cut hoop.
Originally I hadn’t planned on adding sequins and netting to the projects but I really do think it turned out great…if I do say so myself. 😉 I do plan on making more of these…maybe sequins with a Christmas/winter theme?
If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I’m here to share a quick card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery. For this month’s challenge we had to come up with a thank you card.
I started with a folded 3″x6″ piece of cardstock as my base and cut a piece of typewriter cardstock slightly smaller than the base of the card.
I dug through my mass collection of scraps and then cut various sizes of cardstock which I adhered to the bottom half of the card. The vintage typewriter is a digital image I found online and can’t remember where I found it. Just do a google/bing search for vintage typewriters and there’s a ton of images out there.
I printed and then fussy cut the the typewriter out, used a little chalk ink to give it an old look. I also cut a slit in the typewriter so I cut add the “Just a note of thanks!”(printed off the computer) in and make it look like it was actually typed out. I finished off the card with two little hand cut banners, button, sequin and a dew drop.
The hardest thing about this card is the fussy cutting. 🙂 If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I’m back to share a card I created for a special little boy named Eduardo who is at St. Jude’s Hospital and he is battling Leukemia. I had got an invite on Facebook to either make a card or just go out and buy one. I choose to make one. The base of the card is actually a small paperbag which I folded and decorated.
I used an assortment of scrapbook paper, cardstock, scalloped ribbon and a rub on robot which I fussy cut and then added Eduardo name to it.
If you have any questions about Eduardo and how you can send him a card drop me a line and I’ll get the address to you. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday!!!
